Battening down the hatches

In Ye Olde Lande Masse, we have fully hurricanized the Dacha.  Brew Skete contains all of the things we don't want becoming projectiles.  I have made the pre-storm insurance video, and we have over 20 gallons of drinking water laid in, as well as 40 gallons of flush/wash water.  The animals are all prepped, I purchased a rechargeable halogen light, and all things are prepared.

Now is the time for prayer and fasting.

We were scheduled to have divine liturgy this Saturday at the Mission, but that remains an open question.  Luckily I baked a double batch of prosphora last time, so we will be prepared, even without power.

Today, however, is a day of remembrance for many Orthodox Christians in America.  It is the anniversary of the falling asleep of Archbishop Dimitri, a titanic evangelist and missionizer, founder of the Diocese of the South in the OCA, and beloved pastor of a flock spanning 15 states.  May his memory be eternal!
